EC 201 passes QM Review

I teach a number of economics courses between Portland Community College and Portland State University. I teach face-to-face courses and online. In March I was asked by the distance learning department at Portland Community College to put my Principles of Microeconomics up for a Quality Matters (QM) Review.

A QM Review is a rigorous process that evaluates online courses in 8 key areas.

  1. Course Overview and Introduction
  2. Learning Objectives (Competencies)
  3. Assessment and Measurement
  4. Instructional Materials
  5. Course Activities and Learner Interaction
  6. Course Technology
  7. Learner Support
  8. Accessibility and Usability

In June, my Principles of Microeconomics course (EC 201) passed the QM Review process with 95 points out of 95 points!  I am proud that my course scored so well.  It is now listed on the QM website as a QM Recognized Course.

My goal is to have all my courses QM reviewed and certified in the next year.
